ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Some local Girl Scouts got a “Strong Museum of Play” experience that most museum-goers don’t get to have.

As part of the Girl Scouts  “Careers in Construction” patch event, they got a tour of the Strong’s expansion project.

They learned all about tools and what it’s like to work on a construction site, thanks to leaders from LeChase Construction.

“I think oftentimes it’s not communicated enough that the trades and construction is for everybody,” says Laura Sapienza, a project engineer with LeChase Construction. “It’s for women, it’s for men, it’s for people of all backgrounds. And I think that it’s a great place to start a career no matter who you are.”

The museum’s expansion project will add 90,000 square feet for exhibits all about the digital world.
